old positions that are probably not used anymore. as i look at that, the one exception is there is about six positions that appear to be genuine new positions. they don't show up because you are transferring some folks out. it does appear to be new positions. my question is, given the low workload is decreasing and there are people we value and want to continue as it transitions, are there not opportunities or why are there not opportunities to do that kind of substitution and transfer instead of hiring new positions? >> good question. if we did not transfer 13 positions to another part of the organization, i would do that. i would substitute these positions, but it made sense that those people who have worked on it and have the knowledge and classifications already have, it paid better sense to move those over and the type of positions i'm asking for when you look at it is more administrative. we are requiring everyone to put information and construction management information system. we're having engineers spend a lot of time putting information into systems and so we

to learn how to use google in a better way. i use google every day, dozens of times a day. i use google to find a way to the store. i am not in anyway going to advocate that we not use google, but i'm going to advocate the use google and a wiser way, not just a smarter way, a wise way. i want us to understand that google has biases and limitations in its algorithms and google is a company, a publicly traded company that best satisfy the desires of shareholders to enhance values and that's it job and it's been so good at that, so wealthy that it can afford to be good and so it has for the most part and even when it's bad that thinks it's been good which is part of the problem. but with all that, we could be better. the real problem is we are so addicted to the speed and convenience of that lovely set of results that come from a set of 10, and value attached to each and we trust it. we trusted so much that almost nobody clicks past result number three in the first page of results, let alone the second page. that's absurd. in fact, next time you do a google search, click on the second page

out of it to possibly be used in a court of law. throwing out 1200 cases related to tainted dna and other items. you're just creating amount of paperwork here that is going nowhere. i think part of citizenship and part of a citizens obligation is that if they want to fill out a police report, go to a translator, fill out a report, and then take it to the sfpd in both versions would be a better way to go. there are translating departments in every community of this city, as far as i know. but to have a policeman waiting to translate whatever language that you happen to speak, that is not english, that is not part of the policeman's profile or the city and county profile, and if you looked at the break down in cost for languages in this city, there are only several that have transparency is in terms of translations. almost 90% are used one to four times a year. that is the remaining 100 or so. so i think you should look at this in terms of a cost basis as well and set some of the citizens or non-citizens straight that they have on their own volition to make the best attempted to d

partnerships in u.s. foreign policy. there are few relationships that will be as vital in this century as the grows ties with the people of india. in all of the global challenges that we face, india has an important role, we will be looking to them for cooperation and innovation and regional leadership. india's significance has been clear to many of us right now. i traveled to india and took one of the first business trade missions right after the economic reforms were first put in place and i have been there many times since. and and president obama immediately upon entering office inviting prime minister sing to be his guest at the very first state dinner. secretary clinton has visited india twice and both countries inaugurated the strategic dialog two years ago. republicans and democrats alike understand the need to capitalize on the democratic values and strategic interests that our two countries share, that is why it's important that we work together every day, as i believe we are right now, to further cultivate the relationship. we are pleased that president obama has nominated n

us paying at what we are right now is a real competitive disadvantage, because they have additional after-tax funds that they can continue to reinvest in their global networks they don't have. >> and they compete with you here and abroad? >> yes, sir. >> our main competitors are at&t and verizon, as well as the satellite companies, directv and dish. and obviously we compete globally in the capital markets for investments. and farce the impact on the communications industry, i think verizon and at&t are much more similar to us than maybe even the satellite companies, although the difference is that large. we're all capital intensive companies. for us, tax reform is more about getting the economy stabilize and growing, because that's where our growth is going to come from. >> even though you don't compete -- i'm trying to get more of an answer from you. i don't want to put words in your mouth. maybe i can tell you what i'm trying to do and then you can answer. even though you don't have a quote, unquote, international competitor, you're competing internationally for capital. >> yes. >
